Soooo I kind of go through phases of being obsessed with something. Like my obsession with layer cakes or my obsession with blondies or obession with cookies.. you get the point right?! Well recently it has been cooked apples, I mean gaaaaaah they are sooo freaking good. And caramel and apples?! Oh I lose my mind. I realize I am talking about food here and I am sorry but honestly caramel and apples…oh so amazing!!
You see Friday was my friend/co worker Tammys Birthday so I knew I wanted to make a cake and I just happend to make a Cadburys Chocolate Layer Cake the day before for my Fathers birthday so naturally a fruit cake would be best after the overload of chocolate we were experiencing.
This cake was more than I could have imagined. The caramel apples were perfect, literally amazing. And the brown sugar caramel was out of this world! Orginally I wanted to make some Salted Caramel Sauce for this cake but when I went to grab some granulated sugar I had only about 1/4 cup left but had 4 bags of powdered sugar and 4 bags of brown sugar!! Typical! But it made me make brown sugar caramel and I LOOOOOOVED it!
I took the cake to work first but sngagged a little piece to come home and photograph. We enjoyed the cake cold with more brown sugar caramel drizzled on top and of course a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Lez be hoenst ice cream is a fabulous addition to most cakes! After I photographed the pieces at home I deciede to warm it up wtih vanilla ice cream. And now I am stumped, I do not know which I like better cold or warm?! Oh the decisions! I cannot wait to make this again!!
I hope you give this delicious Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake a try, you will love it.
